Glow plug controller may be the light issue.

As far as stalling, it may be high pressure pump, icp sensor or the module. You need a good truck shop to check it for you

Ok, but if the light didnt come on when itried to restart it, does this mean the glow plugs are not heating up?

The controller I mentioned, if the light does not come on, the plugs are not heating up

I found a fuse for the pcn relay coil, fuel heater, wastegate solenoid, injector driver module relay coil. 30 amp, I replaced it and the engine wait to start light came on. So I plug the truck in to heat it up, then I went to start it and the fuse blew again. What may cause this?

Check all the glow plugs. For short to grounds. You may end up replacing them and hope the controller is still good.

Where is the glow plug controller located and how do I identiefy it?
